A bright, standard prime for Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, the MK-50mm f/1.7 from Meike is a versatile lens, suitable for a range of subjects from portraits to landscapes. The f/1.7 maximum aperture enables working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers increased control over depth of field. Benefitting working in strong lighting conditions, a multilayered coating is also used to reduce flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy. This manual focus lens permits working with subjects as close as 1.6' away and a printed focusing scale aids with prefocusing techniques.

Meike 50mm f/1.7 Reviews
You get the image quality of $6000+ lens from this $200 baby. Glass quality is top notch. The only drawback is manual focus. But again, quality & price is like 3x better than any prime lens out there, it easily beats any other 1.4 or 1.2 lenses.
Great for the price
Build quality is good. When I'm accurate with my manual focus, the lens is nicely sharp. Edges may be technically 'soft' but I'm not blowing the image up to billboard size. Well worth the price. Also, Meike has just put out the micro extension tubes and they work great on this lens.
Great for it’s price
I bought a A7II and had no lens so I searched for an affordable yet good lens. I stumbled upon this after searching for quite a bit. Upon receiving it I noticed it’s weight, heavy but it aids in stabilization and a sense of relief that the body won’t break. The photos it produces are sharp, not the sharpest but still sharp. There’s some chromatic aberration at f1.7 but that’s expected. Since it is a prime lens it gives greater control especially in video. It’s a great way to introduce yourself with prime lenses if you have not already. 10/10 would buy again.
Hard to not love it
I'm new to the photo game. I have an a6000 and this was a great way to get into prime lenses in the cheap! Great picture quality, a small amount of distortion corrected easily in Lightroom. Comes with a good and bag.
Good value 50mm
A good value 50mm but it's a manual focus lens. All metal build and a nice feel to the focus ring makes me really like this for shooting video with peaking turned on.
Worth for Cost
Yes good lens and Sharpness ok . I am learning manual mode from this lens. good price.
Awesome quality at great price
Really happy with this lens! Sent to NZ super quick and the quality is excellent. Thank you!
Great Low-Cost Lens
This Meike is sharp until about f2.8. Then drops off a bit up to f1.7. But it is a fast lens at a low cost. This is a manual lens with no auto settings. If you know how to use your Z in a manual mode with no metering, then it could an option for you.
